Books Info:

Extremely Pale Rose free pdf Extremely Pale Rose is the story of the hunt for the palest rose in France. While in Provence last summer, a French lady mistook a conversation about Jamie Ivey's niece Rose for a conversation about rose. From this misunderstanding sprang the challenge to find the palest rose in France. The French drink rose as an aperitif. It is seen as a poor cousin to red and white wine, certainly not meant to accompany food. But for many English holidaymakers, rose epitomises the south of France. Provence specialises in a particularly clear rose which has just a hint of colour. As a rule the paler the rose, the easier it is to drink in the sun, the more the English like it, and the more the French disparage it. This book is the lively account of the travels of three diverse personalities - Jamie, his wife Tanya and their ebullient friend Peter - as they search for the palest rose in France, visiting the main rose-producing areas: Champagne, the Loire, the Jura, Bordeaux, Dordogne, the Rhone, Provence, Languedoc and Corsica. All admirers of Peter Mayle's A Year in Provence and Carol Drinkwater's Olive Farm series, will be richly entertained and informed by Extremely Pale Rose.
